Hey everyone we are back! “But we didn’t even know you were gone” I hear you scream. Well for those of you who didn’t know Stuart and I were away for a two week trip back to our childhood home of Toronto, Canada catching up with family and in general having an absolute ball of a time.
This is why you may have noticed the site has been quiet for the past couple of weeks. So to get back in the swing of things I thought I’d share some pics and a little run down of what we got up to while we were away.
We ended up busy for pretty much the full 14 days straight having done everything from an escape room game at Trapped in Markham to sampling some potions, elixirs and cocktails at The Lockhart on Dundas St West. On day 3 we went down to Niagara Falls for an overnight stay where we jumped on the Maid of the Mist, played some dinosaur mini golf, experienced the delight of the pizza burgers at Boston Pizza and finished the night off in the Casino.
Day 5 we took a walk around Kensington Market and hit up Sonic Boom (you know the record shop where they filmed Scott Pilgrim vs The World). Then on Day 6 we done our regular Toronto pilgrimage to our old apartment, school and nearby shopping mall where we used to hang out.
On day 7 we got to see the awesome Twin Peaks play at the legendary Horseshoe Tavern supported by White Reaper and Jimmy Whispers. Did I mention everywhere we went we were sticker bombing all around us with our brand new HTBB slaps coming to a street near you soon. We even managed to pick up some new B Button supporters from across the water!
While we were away we seen Captain America Civil War at a VIP screening where they took our order before the movie then delivered cocktails and all sorts of food directly to our seats, needless to say normal cinema trips have now been ruined for us! By the way how awesome was Civil War? (comments welcome below) Spidey was handled so well and we absolutely can’t wait to see the solo film Homecoming.
The next night we grabbed some beers and hot dogs at a Blue Jays game (that’s baseball for anyone not up on Canadian sports teams). Then on day 10 we took a long walk around Toronto zoo on one of the hottest days of the trip so far. On the Saturday night we headed to Southern Accent for some Cajun Creole food that is to die for and cocktails that would knock you out including our favourites Gatorbait, Whiskey Sours and Hurricanes yummy drunkenness!
Towards the end of our holiday we went to Ripley’s aquarium which has a cool tank full of sharks that goes right over your head, the same day we took a walk along the harbour front downtown. We want to thank all our family in Toronto who made it an amazing holiday we can’t wait to see you all again soon!
Now that we are back and recharged we are absolutely foaming at the mouth to get out and play some live shows for everyone, so keep an eye on the site as we are working hard on getting that sorted. Also we’ve got some big plans in the pipeline for music videos and a massive EP launch show along with some other top secret plans taking shape at B Button HQ. As always the site should also start getting back to normal now with regular posts on what we’re getting up to, our monthly playlists and maybe even some more crazy posts from Phil in his erratic semi regular (when he can be arsed) blog PHILosophy .
Finally we threw together a little montage of some video we took while we were away and posted it up on our YouTube page, this is an unofficial video which feature the song “She’s Always Blooming” from our new EP To Water On Mars. Check it out below and please take 2 seconds to hit that sub button.
Good to be back making some noise!
